Banana Muffins

This recipe makes 12 medium size muffins. It's easy to make and takes about 30 mins.


Bananas - 3 no.
Sugar - 3/4 cup (or depending on your taste)
Egg - 1
All-purpose flour(Maida) - 1 cup
Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Canola oil - 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 1 tsp
  • Mix the egg, sugar and oil in a bowl with hand mixer, add bananas one at a time to this mixture and mix well.
  • Mix the dry ingredients (flours, salt, baking soda) in a separate bowl and add them to the above wet mixture. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Grease the muffin pan with oil and pour the batter 3/4th full in the cups. Sprinkle nuts and raisins on the batter.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and bake for 20 mins.
  • Test the baked muffins with a toothpick. If you feel the center of the muffins is not cooked properly, cover the muffin pan with aluminum foil and bake for another 6-7mins.

If you have overripe bananas or don't like to eat banana as a fruit, this is a nice way to have them.

is whole wheat flour same as chapathi flour?

Lakshmi said...

I used Sujatha Atta (which is 100% whole wheat flour). Some chapathi flours have other ingredients along with whole wheat flour like malted barley flour etc. So check the ingredients on the pack, if it is 100% whole wheat, you can use it.

When I sprinkled nuts on the (plain cake) batter, they all settled down at the bottom of the cake. Is the banana muffin batter thicker than the plain cake one?


Lakshmi said...

Yep, it is litl thick compared to plain cake batter.
